I live in walking distance of Presbyterian and have used it many times. My PCP is there (she's fantastic!),I've had most of my tests there and underwent surgery there as well. My experiences have been incredibly mixed. I've had great Dr.s there and at least two I wanted to strangle. I've had great nurses and dreadful ones. The restrooms in the office areas are often disgusting.My hospital stay for surgery was FAR below average. I was moved to a room from recovery at 4AM only to learn that the previous occupant of my bed had moved to a private room to escape my rude and thoughtless roommate. (She turned the overhead light on at 5AM!) Since I was scheduled for release that morning, there was no reason (other than being able to bill the insurance for a hospital room) to put me through this. Finally the food was so inedible that I waited till I was released to have breakfast. I had my last surgery at NYU's Langone -which, while inconvenient, was a much better experience.

My 32 yo daughter has an extensive history of post surgical infections due to a subclass immune deficiency, and has previously lost use of a arm due to this. She was admitted in Feb2013 for a pneumothorax, and finally discharged Aug, 2013 (due to one infection after another & having half of a lung/2 ribs removed). When readmitted AGAIN 2 weeks later for the same continuing infection she was discharged with, she is now under a medical team that is terrible. Her primary care for 3 weeks has been predominantly under a 4th year medical student who is dismissive, doesn't know what he is doing with such a complex case, yet is the voice recommending what direction her treatment will be going in...She's still currently inpt. now - we have involved Patient Services - next will be Joint Commission & Health Dept. This admission has been not only uncoordinated, but she is worse after admission than before entering...

The majority of young doctors are not knowledgeable nor good in caring for patients and have attitudes. They are not properly supervised by the senior doctors and do not communicate properly to them the patient's history, condition or progress. The regular medical floors have a shortage of nurses and this hurts the patient's care. These two shortcomings put patients' care in danger.

Doctors leave your care to physician assistants who are pompous, egotistical & keep themselves almost as invisible; most nurses have attitude problems & don't want to be bothered;

Great hospital if you need a full body transplant but if you need basic safe surgery and humane care I do not recommend this hospital. As a Registered Nurse (44 yrs) I picked this hospital on two separate occasions. During my first horrific experience I had a Mastectory and they didn't have a bed for me. I was on a gurney for 5 hours and when the recovery room closed for the night I sat in a chair for 10 hours. Complication: drain infection with terrible long term incision pain. Had to return to Emergency Room. Today's experience had two massive hemorrhages in right eye, which required surgery. Underwent very complicated surgery sent to recovery and told that I couldn't stay in the hospital longer than 30 min. Left as told and had a repeat hemorrahge due to leaving too soon after surgery. Unsure if vision will now ever return.

I was taken there in an emergency. This hospital and the excellent doctors, nurses and facilities saved my life. Without the level of care I received I would not be alive to write this. This is a great hospital with above excellent care and professionalism. 5 stars is not enough.
